Police tear gas hooligans at Bingu National Stadium

Malawi Police in Lilongwe used tear gas to dispense hooligans who went on rampage stoning and destroying vehicles on Kaunda Road near the newly opened Bingu National Stadium.


The destruction of property happened soon after President Peter Mutharika and other dignatries left the stadium soon after the foot ball march.

Rodrick Mkaka, a victim said he had his Mercedenz Benz damaged.

He is one of the people who happened to be on the Kaunda Road which passes through the stadium from Ntandire to Area 49.

It is not known yet who the hooligans were but there are reports that they are young men who were denied entry into the 40000 seater stadium after it became full.

People started queueing to enter the stadium as early as 5 in the morning.

Police are yet to comment on how many have been arrested so far in connection with the violence.

No free entry to stadiums. The next independence celeb should be conducted either at Njamba or Masintha grounds. These two places can accommodate all these young thieves. Youth wings in parties are bleeding grounds for unruly behaviours. We are reaping the fruits we sowed long time ago. Whatever the case I say no to free entries in stadiums if football games are part of the programme.
